Students Have Problem with Trajtenberg Approval

Chairman Itzik Shmuli of the National Student Association said, Sunday, that the cabinet's approval of the Trajtenberg Committee report on socioeconomic change as a package deal was a serious mistake.

Shmuli said, "The report contains important statements, but accompanying them are weak actions that don't solve the housing problems, specificly the field of public housing, eradication of the contract labor phenomenon and the reduction of the price of staple items. Problems can't be solved by cosmetic changes and juggling words." He said that the struggle would be increased on the street and in the halls of the Knesset.
